History of our detective agency.
In 1996, Bear Witness was born from a simple premise. Deliver insightful information and superior service. James Gonzalez is founder and president of this Southern California based private detective agency providing expert surveillance and investigation services to law firms, corporations, executives, VIP's, and select private individuals.
Prior to his current position, James received military training and served with the history-rich 1st Cavalry Division of The United States Army. During his honorable tour of duty, he was recognized by the U.S. Army for his dedication, hard work under adverse conditions, meticulous attention to detail, true professionalism, outstanding performance of duty, and for National Defense during the Gulf War.
Once back in his native Southern California metropolitan surroundings, he put his innate talents, skills, and abilities to work in the world of private investigations. In the years to follow, James became a top ranked private investigator and worked for several large firms where he specialized in covert surveillance operations. He successfully performed thousands of sensitive and difficult surveillance assignments, gathered valuable intelligence and video evidence, trained dozens of field operatives, shattered productivity records, and eventually founded his own detective agency. Overall, he brings to Bear Witness more than 20 years of dedicated investigative experience.
Although this modern-day private investigator could be quite comfortable behind his large desk and ergonomic office chair, it is an unlikely place to find him. His passion lies in surveillance and investigative fieldwork. James regularly consults with clients to help create strategic solutions to their challenging problems. He is driven and devoted to unearthing information, evidence, and answers. That is his company's indisputable trademark. And that has earned James and his team both the respect of colleagues and clients, as well as, an envious professional reputation for success.
Raised in Los Angeles, California, James now calls coastal Orange County home. He is a California State licensed private investigator and an active member of several local, national, and international investigative associations. He leads and supervises an unparalleled team of seasoned private investigators providing clients with a true “full-service” offering.
Today, our detective agency handles private investigation & surveillance assignments across the Golden State of California, nationwide, and globally.
